Many possibilities

Dermatogic questions, such as rashes, are very difficult to answer accurately since an examination is so important in making a diagnosis. Some of the more common possibilities include a fungal infection or an eczema condition. Best to have this examined by your doctor to give you a definite diagnosis.

Dr. Peter A. Lio answered:

Been experiencing small red rashes and/or lumps on the inside of my left elbow only, vary in size. Usually not itchy, but always in the same spot.?

Need more info

Dermatology is pretty visual, so it's hard to know what is going on without seeing it. Eczema, psoriasis, and urticaria (hives) can develop around the elbows, though eczema and hives tend to be itchy. Sometimes an irritant or mild allergic contact dermatitis can present in the same place as well. I'd recommend seeing a dermatologist to help solve this one.

Dr. John Ebner answered:

I have a raised bump on the inside of my arm in my elbow crease. It is itchy, has no rash. I have had an ear infection 3 weeks ago could this be an inflamed epitrochlear node? should i be worried?

Difficult to know

Lipoma
This is the location for the epitrochlear lymph nodes, but this could just as easily be an epidermal inclusion cyst (sebaceous cyst) or a lipoma (fatty tumor) or something more serious. I would suggest you have it evaluated if you are concerned.

I have a rash on inside of elbow that appeared a week ago. Itchy in the morning and just before bedtime. Used an antifungal ointment but isnt working?

Irritant Dermatitis

Skin_rash
Irritant contact dermatitis accounts for 80% of all contact dermatitis reactions. It occurs when the skin comes in contact with a substance that acts as an irritant. Even though over 2800 substances have been identified as irritants, almost any substance under the right circumstances can act as an irritant. Treatment is with prescription cortisone cream.
